Getting rid of six-figure debt is no easy feat but Takiia Anderson, the voice behind The Frugal Biddy, is proof that it can be done. After graduating from law school, Takiia had accrued more than $150,000 of debt. As the single mother of a 2-year-old little girl making only $34,000 a year, she knew that something had to change.
Takiia went on to save over $500,000 and pay for her daughter’s college education at the prestigious Spelman College. She shares all of her tips, tricks, and personal finance advice on her blog, The Frugal Bitty.
